Sony Bloggie Sport Camera MHS-TS22

Category: Digital Video Cameras - Date: September 24, 2012

The Sony Bloggie Sport camera is the perfect type of camera for use on the go, with a great low price while maintaining great quality and good features at the same time. Of course, you’re not going to get a professional camera out of a Sony Bloggie, but with 1080p HD video recording capabilities and 5 MP for still images, this is the perfect digital camera for casual use. The camera is built for durability, as it’s shockproof and can withstand a five foot drop. Not only that but it’s dustproof too which means adventurers can document their journey with no fear of damaging the camera due to dirt. If you want to take your adventure underwater you can do that too, as long as it’s in less than 16 feet deep water for less than an hour.

Hardware

Inside every Sony Bloggie Sport you will find a Exmor CMOS optical sensor, an electronic image stabilizer, a 4.1 mm lens, a built-in light, a built-in speaker, a USB 2.0 port, a 2.7″ LCD touchscreen display, 4 GB of internal flash memory, and so much more. All of the great hardware built into the Bloggie Sport are the reason it is capable of shooting 1080p video, taking great photos, and more including YouTube capture mode and face detection.

Recording

The Sony Bloggie MHS-TS22 can record your most adventurous moments in full high definition (1920 x 1080) mp4 videos and can shoot pictures too, at 5 megapixels.

Design

Unfortunately, Sony has somewhat of a bad reputation when it comes to the design of its products, and the Bloggie Sport only reinforces that reputation. The Bloggie Sport is not a camera that you would be likely to purchase from looks alone, although no digital camera should be anyway. It has a very cheap, although sporty, feel to it and about the only thing that looks nice on it is the implementation of metallic colors. It comes in red, blue or black.

Size

Son’s Bloggie Sport comes in at 2.4 in x 0.8 in x 4.6 inches and weighs a mere 4.5 ounces. It is certainly quite small and compact and sports a rather small display as well (2.7 inches) which could be advantageous for portability reasons. The built-in usb arm, which is conveniently tucked into the camera, is made for easy uploading into YouTube, to transfer your videos to your computer or to charge the device.

Battery

A rechargeable lithium-ion battery powers the Bloggie Sport, offering varying battery life based on usage according to most customer reviews.

Conclusion

If what you’re looking for is a highly portable digital camera with the ability to take decent photos and record videos in 1080p, the Bloggie Sport is a nice choice. Even if you’re not a big fan of Sony’s products for whatever reason (and unfortunately, there can be quite a few), the Bloggie Sport is a solid product for the casual photographer. At only $180, it’s hard to go wrong when a professional digital camera just isn’t necessary for your needs.
